'This “new generation trumpet player” convinced me from the beginning to explore this album with time and dedication.'
'The structural and emotional synthesis between East and West is fantastic on Arola's album.'
'Another thing I can't get enough is Arola's trumpet – his playing is gracefully beautiful, sometimes strong and powerful without being forceful, all in all very delightful.'
'Wonderful horn playing with the depths of the soul being strongly present.'
'Arola masters his instrument by moving from one emotional expression to another. Professional skills with good taste. All in all the band knows how to burst from holy silence into rhythmic climax. Melodic energy and soulfulness can be heard throughout the album.'
